Patricia took up painting in 1994 and was drawn to painting wildlife. Learning and developing her style has taken her across North America to find new subjects to paint. She brings depth and detail to her acrylic paintings, and enjoys the process of mixing from a very limited palette of four main colours.

She has a special interest in painting endangered wildlife. Often something unique about the animal will inspire a painting. She develops her paintings from research and photographing animals in the wild and enjoys bringing out each animal’s character.

“One of the strengths of wildlife art is its ability tell stories. In my paintings I try to bring out the individuality of each animal as it goes about its everyday life. I portray many endangered animals, hoping that bringing them to life in my art will raise awareness of how close we are to losing them.”
